Christmas tree falls, killing 4 in Brazil

SAO PAULO, Brazil (AP) -- Police say four men were killed when a huge Christmas tree they were erecting fell on top of them.

Police say they are investigating what caused the 120-meter (395-foot) aluminum tree to collapse on Monday.

Police said Tuesday that the tree was scheduled to be lit up in the northeastern city of Aracaju on Friday.

They did not know how much the tree weighed.
